Wahbikoiww. Oot. ll.-Sooretary Alger to
day sont to the War Investigating Commission
hit reply to tho nix question asked him a to
(the plans of tho Sniitlngo campaign and their
Methods o( accomplishment. Tho Secretary's
answer Is an outlfno of tho Cuban war from tho
War Department standpoint. He also sent
oplos of numerous telegrams to Oon. Bhaftor
regsnllng the start from Tampa. and also a
opy of Instructions to Gen. Miles regarding
the Porto Bloo campaign.
The Information given by the Heoretary in
Maponse to the commission's questions was:
1. Plan of campaign proposed Immediately
ftor the declaration of war; was It intended to
nova at on oe on Havana or that the campaign
Mould be postponed until tho autumn ?
Answer-Immediate blockade i by the navy of
e important ports of Cuba as directed by the
fresldont's proclamation. The holding of troops
at points noarest to Cuba to be available In any
emergency which might arise, and especially
D be ready for prompt assistance In case the
jneratlons of the navy should make the use of
Me land forces necessary or deslrabln.
Early In May n plan was partially matured to
land a fore at Nairiol. a point about twenty
fix miles west of Havana, reports having been
Roelvcd that In Its immediate vicinity were
Igh grounds, well watered and suitable for
tamping troops preparatory for a movement
eon Havana Tatar If it was deemed advisable.
file thought being that possibly, an assault
fitght be made upon the forces defending that
Sty before tho rainy season sot In. Orders were
bailed to that effect on May I), nut subsequent
ly plans were cbangodon account of further In
' formation that there would be great danger to
Vie health of the troops in that vicinity, and
also on account of the uncertainty of tho raovc
fienUofthe enemy's fleet It was then do
trmlned to keep the forces in the United
States at points as near Cubu as possible for
Gnmediato embarkation should an emergency
iamand It The Santiago campaign proved to
Be that emergency. It should be added, fur
ther, that It was bolieved. after consultation
with medical authorities, that troops camping
In Southern BtntcB during the summer would
become somewhat acclimated for their ser-
5? Vhen was the Santiago campaign deter
mined upon? '
HI Answer The Santiago campaign was mado
necessary by the prosoncoof Admiral Cervora s
fleet In Santiago harbor, but had previously
peon contemplated as one point on the coast
where a reconnolsance In force was to bo mado
to ascertain the strength of the enemy In the
different locations in eastern Cuba
Tho Immediate destruction of Admiral Cer
vera's fleet was necessary, and to enablo the
navy to accomplish this the military foroe un
der Major-Gen. Shatter, unitod Btutes A'olnn
teers. was directed to move at once on the city
and provlnco of Santiago, This movement was
hastened by reason of a telegram received by
Admiral Sampson on Juno 7. stating that he
had bombarded forts at Santiago .Tune 0 and
silenced works quickly, and. If 10.000 mon
were there, city and fleet could be captured
Within forty-edght hours.
It la proper to stnte that aftor tho date of this
jnessnge the Spanish garrison wns largely re
inforced. The opinion of Admiral Sampson
Was doubtless correct nt tho time. Tho troops
galled from Tampa on Juno 14, 1898, 10.088 of
ficers and men.
3. Why was Tampa soloctcd as the baso of
operation! ?
Answer On account of the shipping facilities
at that point and Its comparatively short dis
tance from Cuba, rendering any movement of
the troops possible on short notice, as the prog
ress of tho blockade or any other sudden con
dition might require. .
4. Why wero summer camps organized at
Fornanulnn, Jacksonville and Tampa ?
Answer All of the early camps In the South
were selected with special regard for the health
cf the troops and their convenience for prompt
fiovement by rail and water. Tho camp at
ernandina wis organlred on the recommen
atlon of the Major-Oeneral eommondlng the
army. Tho camp at Jacksonville was selected
on the recommendation of Major-Gen. I,ee.
TJnitedStatos Volunteers, commanding Sovonth
Army Corps (Cony of telegram herewith at
tached marked "I''). , .
- Apermnnent camp was never contemplated
at Tampa. Troops were sent there prepara
tory for embarkation, and were kept there for
any emergency and later to embark for Porto
Blco. and upon tho signing of the protocol the
, troops, being no longer required at Tampa,
were sent to Huntsvllle. Ala., a camp selected
!y three officers detailed to ascertain the cam p
ng sites, having In view the health aud cont
ort of the soldiers.
6. When was the Porto Bioo campaign deter
mined upon?
Answer The Porto Rico campaign had been
long under consideration and tho orders to
carry it out were Issued Juno 2H. 1808 (see
eopy of letter herewith marked "J" to Major
Gen. Miles. United 8tates Army).
6. Why were the troops hold on transports
after embarkation at Tampa and not permitted
to sail for several days?
Answer Troops were held on transports af
ter embarkation at Tampa on acoount of tho
advices received from Commodore Bemey say
ing: "Spanish cruiser, second class, and Span
ish torpodo boat destroyer, seen by Eagle, Nic
olas Ohannol. Cuba ; destroy convoy."
Secretary Alger transmitted with his report
the following copies of telegrams and correspondence-.

Washington. Oct 11. The War Department
has not received reports of deaths among the
troops at Manila by telegraph, and as a
consequence many of the soldiers there
were doad for some time before their rela
tives and friends in this country knew of it.
Gen. Wood, at Santiago, and Gen. Brooke, at
San Juan, have been sending daily reports by
telegraph of the deaths among the forces In
Cuba and Porto Bloo. The War Department
directed Major-Gen. Otis to telegraph a com
plete list of all the men who had died since the
first expedition left San Francisco for Manila.

Mr. McKlnlejr Expresses Wish Not to In
fluence the Progress of the Case.
Canton, O.. Oct. 11. Mrs. Annie George had
a preliminary hearing to-day on the charge of
shooting the late George D. Saxton, Mrs. Mo
Klnley's brother. The hearing will be con
tinued to-morrow, only five of the eleven wit
nesses having boen examined when the court
adjourned.
A street car man, S. C. Bit terhouso, testified
that on Friday evening, a short time be
fore the shooting, a woman who had been
pointed out to him as Mrs. George got on the
car and rodo to Hazlet avenue, within a block
of the street on whloh the murder occurred.
She was dressed in black, in about the same
way as others have described the woman who
walked away from Mr. Buxton's body after the
shots wore fired.
Perry Van Horn, a newspaper reporter, testi
fied that Mrs. Goorge told him six months ago
that if Saxton did not keep his premise to
marry her after he settled his lawsuit with her
former husband, she would shoot him. She
told him that the day after she met Saxton and
Mrs. A It house near the latter' home and
pointed a revolver at Saxtou, She had sent for
Van Horn, saying that she wanted to tell him
of the occurrence of the night before and that
she wanted It published.
The following statement was made to-day
concerning the conference held between Mr.
Saxton 's relatives and the court ofllcials yester
day: The Prosecuting Attorney called uixn the
Barber family, including Mr. MuKlnley, to learn
what their disposition was In regard to taking
part in the prosecution of Mrs. Gergo. Mr.
MeKinley, speaking for himself and the fam
ily, said that the family would not appear aa
prosecutors of the case, but that they well un
derstood that Itho officers had a duty to per
form with which thoy did not Intend to inter
fere. "In the course of conversation a gentleman
present suggested that It might expedite
matters If Die case oould be hurried by calling
a special Grand Jury and urging a speedy trial.
President MuKlnley answered that he had no
dosire upon the subject himself, and that he
knew of no reason why the defendant should
be treated any differently from any other
person under like circumstances; that un
less there was special reason for expedit
ing t hu proceedings he saw no reason to hurry
matters; that the case against the aecused party
should be allowed to take its usual course of
procedure by law. and he added that be wanted
It distinctly understood that he and the family
did not expect or desire that any special course

Bakttaoo r Otjba, Oot. 11. ool. Bay of the
Third Immunes, commanding the American
troops at Manxanlllo. cabled to Gen. Wood this
morning that the last of the Spanish troops
evacuated Manxanlllo at 9:30 o'clock yesterday
afternoon, after which the American flag was
hoisted on the publlo buildings, and American
troops were detailed to patrol the streets. The
Spaniards took with them all the publlo money
and everything In the nature of portable prop
erty. The Spanish commander made an
effort to extract from Ool. Bay a promise
to retain the Spanish functionaries In
the 'civil offices, but he, believing It to
be a soheme to keep In power the Spanish
Autonomist party, refused to acquiesce In suoh
a Plan. He dismissed the Spanish Mayor. Al
caldes, and Captain of the Port, and replaced
them with Cubans, who were recommended by
the best oltlsens of the town. These appoint
ments are only temporary. Gen- Wood pur
poses sending Col. Wyley and Gen. Demetrio
Castillo to Manwinlllo to institute a regular
otttl government as soon as they return from
Guantanamo, Bagua de Tanamo, and Baracoa.
Col. Bay has appointed an American officer
Collector of Customs, and Instituted the mini
mum Spanish tariff that is in operation at San
tiago. He has made Mansanillo a regular
American port. He will transmit all money
collected Immediately to Gen. Wood.
Oen. Wood promptly telegraphed his ap
proval of Col. Bay's arrangements. There was
great rejoicing among the Cubans over the
evacuation of the town by the Bpaniards. The
Cuban leaders voluntarily offered to keep tho
turbulent men in their ranks in check, and to
respect the authority of tho Americans.
The Cubans in Santiago held an Impromptu
celebration of the Yara rising In the plaza in
front of the palace last night. A dozen speeches
were delivered from the portico of the Ban
Carlos Club. Gen. Garcla's Influence prevailed,
and the enemies of American authority wore
suppressed. Gen. Garcla's friends toasted the
American armyand the American government
in Santiago. They cautioned the people not to
be led astray by demagogues, and declared
that the Americans meant to guarantee a sta
ble government in Cuba, to restore industry,
and to protect lives and property.
Gen. Wood was prepared for an emergsney.
He had detachments of the Fifth Regulars and
Fifth Immunes stationed in the central part of
the city, and he remained at the palace with
his staff until the crowd had disappeared.
The troops had to clear the orowd out of one
drinking place where a number of Cuban of
ficers and soldiers who do not favor the con
tinuance of American authority were indulg
ing in Incendiary talk, but good order gener
ally prevailed.
Word was recelvod from Camaguey to-day
that the assembling of the Cuban Congress had
been postponed until Oct 30 on account of the
bad roads.
Gen. Wood ordered the Spanish ooat-of-arms
to be removed from the palace and all other
publlo buildings to-day and the Dnlted Btates
shield put up in their places.
The Cuban celebratlno. which was to have
been held here to-day in commemoration of
the revolution of Yara In 1808 was postponed
on acoount of bad weather. It has rained
steadily for the lost seventy-two hours and the
streets of the olty and the roads to the Interior
of the province near the town are so deep with
mire that it was impossible to carry out the
programme. All of the publlo houses are gar
with Cuban flags and the town Is filled with
officers of the Cuban Army from all parts of the
island. Two offloere came all the way from
Nuevitas. in Puerto Principe province, to take
part in the celebration. If the weather per
mits the parade of Cuban clubs. Cuban sol
diers and citizens of Santiago who sympathize
with the Cuban cause will take place on Mon
day, Oct. 17. The parade will be followed by
epeeohmaktng and there will bo a general open
house in the evening.
The Cuban offloere want to bring a body of
armed men Into the town, but Gen. Wood has
forbidden it. Gen. Wood told them that the
American soldiers and officers were not per
mitted to carry arms when not on duty and
said he oould sco no reason why the Cubans
should do so. The presenoe in the city of so
many Cubans from' the interior has led to many
exciting discussions of the situation at the
Cuban clubs. The visitors are all In favor of
thellmmediate evacuation oCthe Island by the
Americans and the establishment of a Cuban
republic There is much talk against the
Americans.
The extreme Cuban party has been strength'
ened by the arrival from the western part of
the island of Gon. Sanchez, who arrived at
Cuevltas last night. It is said, to take the plaoe
of Callxto Garcia. The news of the ooming of
Sanchez caused a demonstration among the
Cubans here in his honor.
Col. Freeman of the Fifth regulars. Major
Btarr, Inspeotor-General of the department,
and Major Carr returned from their inspec
tion trip to Baracoa and Sagua de Tanamo
to-day. They bring the news that. Col. Wyley,
commander of a battalion of: the Third Im
munes, is maintaining the authority of the
United States at Baracoa. though ho has had
trouble with the Cuban Brigadier command
ing the Cuban forces about tho town. The
Cuban commander refused to allow the men
sent from the town to work'on the plantations
to pass his lines. Col. Wyley arrested and dis
armed the. Cuban Brigadier the first time he
appeared in the streets of Baracoa. and after
this action took the weapons away from thirty-five
of his men.
The health of the Baracoa garrison Is ex
cellent, but there is a great deal of sickness
among the men of the two companies sta
tioned at Bagua de Tanamo. Gen. Wood has
decided to reduce the garrison at Sagua to one
company, ancijhas made Ool. Wyley the com
mander both at Sagua and Baracoa and also
Assistant Civil Governor of the province.
Gen. Demetrio Castillo sailed to-night on the
lighter Los Angeles on a trip along the coast
for the purpose of instituting civil govern
ments in all of the coast towns of Santiago
province. Gen. Wood had planned to go him
self, but. the unsettled state of affairs here re
qulrodltho presenoe of Col. Wyley as well as
himself. Oen. Castillo took with him 100.000
rations for the relief of distressed Inhabitants.
Guantanamo will be his first stopping plaoe.
He will appoint a Mayor and a Justice of the
Poaoe In each town from candidates recom
mended by the prominent citizens. Tim civil
dignitaries will be subject to the authority of
the American military commander. Word
has been received from Guantanamo to the
effect that half a dor.ou plantations in that
neighborhood huvo resumed work, employ
ing some native labor, and to-day added some
imported labor. Gen. Wood is receiving re
quests from plantations and mines for laborers
every day. Two thousand men are wanted,
but nothing can induce the Cubans, who have
been drawing free rations since the Americans
came, to go to work. Gen. Wood is gradually
cutting off the Issue of rations to any Cubans
except women and children.
Major Starr and Lieut. Brooks of Gen.
Wood's staff will sail early to-morrow morn
ing around ('ape Muysl. with .'. mm rations
for the relief of distress on the north ooast.
They will stop t Baracoa. Sagua de Tanamo,
Gibara and Banes. Couriers were despatched
Into the Interior to-day to tell the starving

CRAZED WHEN HE SHOT HIM
CBAXLXM A. HAIT.VM ON Tltrtr, TOR
KH.IINO KDWAKD MAUKR.
His Banghter Had Been Lured Away by
Magee and His Wife Had Threatened o
Mil Hint if He Did Not Ptnd Magee
and Make Him Marry the Young Woman.
The trial of Charles A. HaUum for killing
Edward Magee at Orange on June 25 was re
sumed In Newark yesterday and the State fin
ished early In the day. the killing being prac
tically established by a dozen witnesses and
the motive having been shown heyond a doubt.
The defence called Police Surgeon J. Henry
Clark as the first witness, he having been act
ing as County Physician at the time In the Ab
sence of Dr. Wrightaon.- Dr. Clark produced
the dying statement of Magee. In It Mageo
admitted that he had got Helium's daughter
into trouble. After telling about a meeting
with Helium the statement concludes as fol
lows: "He said to me, 'I thought you told me you
never took my daughter to a house In Newark.'
I told him I didn't We quarrelled. He shot
me twloe. He Is the cause of my death."
Dr. Clark said the declaration was written
by him at Magee's dictation. Mngee's mental
oondltlon was dear at the time.
Mrs. Anna Hallum testified that she hod
three boys and two girls. Bhe said that Ada
waa 18 and Magee had been culling on hor for
nearly three years. The girl loft home mys
teriously about a week before the shooting
took plaoe. In answer to questions Mrs. Hal
lum said that her husband behaved as if dis
tracted about the girl. She admitted threat

make him marry Ada.
The next witness called was Josephine Hal
lum. aged 10. She corroborated her mother
e to her father's mental oondltlon and then
fainted, ns she had done on the previous day.
Ada Hallum, the young woman About whom
the quarrel was begun, was then called. She
swooned the moment she was sworn. Both
sisters were carried Into the witness room and
brought around by a doctor.
The prisoner was then put upon the stand,
lie said that he was 48 years old and had lived
In Orange most of his life. When asked what
the state of his mind was when he did the
shooting, he said :
I didn't have no mind. I was just about
the same as oruzy."
He protested that he did not want to shoot
Magee. but showed him the handle of the pis
tol in his Docket to make him tell where Ads
was. and Magee Instantly grappled with him.
the pistol going off accidentally In the begln
i nlng of the tussle and again a few seconds
later, while they were both down in the gut
ter. He protested that ho did not know what
he said or did later.
Ada Hallum returned to the stand Inter and
told about going away with Magee under
promise of marriage. She said that he left bar
In a hotel In New Brunswick. She said Magee
never offered to marry her. except on tho night
they went to New Brunswlok. She denied say
in Vn.?.t "ho hoped her father would be hanged
for killing Eddie, but if she did say It. it was
because she was all wrought up and nervous
over the killing.
Capt. Ham ford of the West Orange police
testified that Ada said she hoped her father
would "get the rope for it."
JACKSON KII.I.KI BIB BON.
A Jury Finds the Negro Guilty of Man
slaughter. In Hackensack last evening the jury In the
case ot Nicholas Jackson, colored, oharged with
murder, brought In a verdict of manslaughter.
The accusation against him was that he caused
.the death of his 5-year-old son by laying the
boy on a railroads track where a train crushed
him. He wan incited to the deed, It Is said, by
his wife, who is in jail charged with being an
accessory. Tho mother of the child, who is
terribly deformed, has bean carried into court
for every session of the trial. All the parties In
the case are colored.
For its evidence of criminal vlciousness on
the part of both the defendant and his wife, to
say nothing of the mother of the dead ohild,
the case is remarkable. According to the pris
oner's own statement, his wife deliberately
Inolted blm to murder and blamed him for his
delinquency in not drowning the boy wheu
opportunity offered. The story of the events
which culminated In the boy's death was told
by witnesses and by the defendant himself
substantially as follows, both sides agreeing
on the main points up to within an hour
before the killing: After the birth of the
boy his mother was unable to support
him and the father would not, so
mother and child lived with the boy's
grandparents until 1890. when the mother
went to the township poorhouse, taking the boy
with her. They were there for only three
weeks : then the woman returned homo and
the child was taken by the father, who put him
to board in Spring Valley. There little Lewis
stayed until last July, when Jackson married
a young colored woman ot Hackensack and
took his son borne with him. Tho one Idea of
Mrs. Jackson, it is said, was to be rid of the
child, and she kept inciting her husband to dis
pose ot Lewis. Jackson himself and other
witnesses testified to this.
On the morning of Monday, July IS, Jackson
took the boy to the Overseer of the Poor at tho
County Poorhouse, but could not obtain ad
mission for him. An hour later the boy was
seen by George Tcrbune, struggling In the
water In McDonald's ice pond, while the fathor
stood on the bank looking on. Afterward he
explained that Lewis had fallen into tho sluice
way. Bystanders rescued Lewis, who was re
vived by a doctor and taken home by his father.
That evening Jackson left home and went to
see his wife at Mr. George Walker's, where she
was employed. There, according to his testi
mony, she told him Ihnt he must gel rid of the
ohild that night or he needn't expect to come
back: to her. and also said :
"When you had him In the iond why didn't
you hold his head at the bottom? Then it
would have been all right."
In reply he told her that he would get rid of
Lewis fn somo way. Thoy parted at 8:50, and
he got the child, intending, he says, to leave
him at the Jackson house in Bergen Fields.
and then tell his wife that he'd given the boy
away to a German peddler. That he considered
an easy way out of his difficulty. When they
were within a quarter of a mile of the West
Shoro Bailroad tracks the boy became tired and
wanted to rest.
Hero is where the case of tho defence differs
from that of the prosocution. Jackson said
that the boy fell asleep In the grass, aud he left
him there and returned to Hackensaok. and
that is all he knows of the case. The prosecu
tion charged that he rendered the boy uncon
scious, fixed his leg in the guard rail of the
south-bound track, and waited for a train to
come along and kill him. Then he scattered
the members so as to avert suspicion. The
boy's body was found on the Cedar Lake road
way, far below tho track, early on the morning
ot the 10th. One foot was found ninety feet
north ot the body on the north-bound track,
and the hat was some distance to one side.
The hat and foot, the prosecution alleges, the
defendant placed where they were found.
Besides the eirourusuuitlal evidence adduced,
the State called a fellow prisoner ot Jackson in
the jail, named Charles Boblnson, who swore
that Jackson confessed to him that he put the

ohild on the railroad traolr. To rebut this the
defence called oneof the famous Bawaon twins,
also a prisoner in the jail, who swore to having

did not.
The jury wont out about 4 :20 o'clock In the
afternoon and did not reach a verdict until
after it o'clook.
Jackson, the defendant, is an undersized
negro ot Inoffensive appearance. Ho is 22
years old. but looks not more than 19. The
manner of his testimony was such as to Indi

AhDERMEN BOJEBINQ.
They Won't Come to the Meetings and
Genernl Orders Can't Pass.
Alderman Burleigh (Hep.) ot Brooklyn in
troduced a resolution in the Board yesterday
directing the Committee on Bules to prepare a
measure which will Insure a larger attendance
of members at tho regular weekly meetings.
The resolution was adopted. The preparation
of such a rule Is made necessary. It is said, by
the fact that the attendance of tbe Aldermen
has been very poor for several months. There
are sixty members of the board, and forty-five
votes are necessary to pass general orders or
resolutions calling for tbe expenditure of
money. It Is only after great Intervals that a
money-spending quorum can bo got together,
and tho resulrlis that the board Is overwhelmed
with unfinished business. Many resolutions
which were introduced months ago are still
awaltingtnnal action. As no penalty attaches to
non-attendance at meetings many of the Alder
men do not take the trouble to niuke.t he journey
to the City Hall. Their salaries go on just the
same whether they attend meetings or not.
The main object ot Alderman Burleigh's reso
lution is said to be to llx a penalty tor persist
ent nou-attendance.
Law to Keep Bridge Trolley Cars 108 Feet
Apart.
The Council adopted yesterday an ordinance
which. If concurred In bv the Aldermen and
approved by the Mayor, will compel tbe trolley
cars orosslng the Brooklyn Bridge to run not
less than 102 feet apart, under a penalty of $26
, for each violation. The companies have eon-
traded with the olty to do this, but there is
now no penalty for violating tho agreement.
Tho Council adopted also a resolution direct
ting the abolition of turnstiles on elevated rail
road stations all over tho " greator city." The
ordinance provides that the elevated companies
shall keep at least two men at each station un
der a penalty of $1U0 for eaoh violation.
Council Want to Investigate City's Com
merce. A resolution was adopted by the Council yes
terday providing for the appointment of a
joint committee of the Municipal Assembly to
investigate the decline in manufacture, export
trade and commerce at the port of New York.
If the Aldermen concur and the Mayor ap
proves, the committee Is directed to Inquire
exhaustively Into tho subject and to suggest
such municipal or State legislative remedies ax
the members deem proper and expedient. A
similar committee, which was appointed by
Gov. Black, is now Investigating.
